Re: New Macs

M1 Pro and M1 Max both look like quite something. New MacBook Pros seem pretty cool, and a lot of the rumours, such as the return of MagSafe, were fulfilled.

I don't think many people were expecting both the M1 Pro and M1 Max, though...

Re: Apple Event Monday 18th Oct 6pm UK time

The new MacBook Pros do look very very cool. But after purchasing a refurbished M1 MacBook Air last week I’m kind of relieved they are leaving that model untouched. Also quite pleased that to get the same memory/SSD it will still cost £700 more than I paid. And the M1 seems so incredibly fast. It’s ...

Re: Apple Event Monday 18th Oct 6pm UK time

Literally had the Apple website open ready to purchase an M1 MacBook Air with 16GB memory and a 1TB SSD when I read your thread.

Now I’m wondering if I should just wait. Doubt I’ll be able to afford an upgraded MacBook Pro though…

Hmmm.

Re: Spec for Garageband

Just a quick question for Mac experts -

What’s the difference between the M1 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro?

From looking at the website, the M1 MBP has a Touch Bar, and perhaps 2 hours more of battery life.

It seems the Air is a much better buy.

Any thoughts/info on this? Thanks!

Re: New Macs

Just checking back to see if anyone is actually using a new iMac for music production yet. I'm a bit financially challenged, but updating my 2013 21.5 iMac is becoming a bit critical now. I'm labouring over refurnished vs new, and a new iMac vs an M1 MacBook Air. I probably won't be able to afford m...

Re: mac mini confusion

So, with the consensus that hubs/docks are going to be needed for most Macs, anyone recommend a decent one?

I'd need USB C out, and a mix of USB C/Thunderbolt and at least one USB A port.

Re: New Macs

Anyone gone down the new M1 iMac route yet? Any comments? I've bought the 13" M1 Laptop. Seems to work fine. Ah, I'm wondering about the M1 MacAir. However, how are you doing with the lack of ports? I'd be interested to see what other people with an M1 laptop are doing in terms of hubs? I see ...

Re: M1 iMac Music Production

Subscribed. I'm ready for an upgrade to my 2013 iMac 21 inch, but am completely torn about what to go for. Apple have a 0% credit offer on Macs at the moment, so a new iMac seems like a good bet, rather than get a Mini and have to get screen, keyboard, etc. separately. I'd love to see if anyone else...

Re: New M1 iMac shipping with 256GB storage as standard!!!

I agree, I think the lack of storage is poor on a desktop. However, interestingly, I have have been running a 2013 21 inch iMac with 1TB rotating disk, and over the years the disk has edged towards being full, significantly impacting performance. I gradually shifted items onto backup and secondary d...

Re: New Macs

Any class compliant audio device should work, maybe they plugged it in and it didn't though. You could always just buy one, try it out and if it doesn't work return it. Edit: just had a look on the web, looks like the interface will work fine but the software to control the mixer will not work. If ...

Re: New Macs

Hi - sorry to swing the focus of this thread around a little, but... IS there a thread anywhere that lists what is compatible with the M1 Mac/Big Sur yet? As I said earlier in the thread, I am just about ready to upgrade my 2013 iMac to a new M1 machine, probably a Mac Mini but just possibly a MacBo...
